Madrid. (European media). The United States will reopen its borders on Monday to international travelers who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus pandemic for 20 months. It is expected that the country will open its land, air, and sea borders on Monday.
“It might look a little sloppy at the beginning, but I can assure it,” said Ed Bastian (executive director of Delta Air Lines), in a statement obtained by CNN.
According to airline spokesperson Morgan Durrant, many of Delta’s scheduled flights are full, and he admitted that international bookings have increased 450% in the past six weeks.
On Monday alone, the number of international arrivals at New York’s Newark Airport and John F. Kennedy Airport is expected to increase by 11%, with a total of 253 flights.
According to the Customs and Border Protection Agency, traffic congestion is expected at Mexico’s borders. They ask travelers to be prepared and patient.
These changes will revive international travel before the holidays, and address complaints from border communities that the United States has imposed different rules on ground and air access.
The new policy will remove non-essential travel restrictions, which were implemented in March 2020. Americans won’t have any restrictions when they return home.
